    tie up the loose ends

    Hi

    Can I say that I'm tying the loose ends when I'm talking about my essay for example, I make some corrections etc., or is it used in some other context?

    Re: tie up the loose ends

    It is informal, but perfectly acceptable.

    I have written my essay, but I need to tie up some loose ends before submitting it.

    It implies there are some elements in the essay which need to be sorted out and clarified.
